Plugging Home Drains to Prevent Sewage Backup
 
Plugging Home Drains to Prevent Sewage Backup
To reduce the possibility of sewage backing into a home, homeowners will need to seal areas where sewage can flow in during periods of excessive rains or flooding. Sewage not only can damage building components and carpeting, it also has high concentrations of bacteria, protozoans and other pathogens that can pose serious health risks.
